Happy *Birth* Day...TAWS Birthday Celebration, Retro sketches #97, Just Us Girls #223

Hello,

Quick dash this morning!  TAWS is celebrating their 3rd birthday, and we've been invited to join in the fun.


 Because I love my mini card and envelope die pairing, and my TAWS Priceless Joy elephant, I created cards to celebrate the most important birthday of all:  *birth* day.  Layout inspiration for these little babies comes from Retro sketches #97,



and my wee ellies are paper pieced, so we're heading to Just Us Girls #223: Technique Challenge


Set 1

Set 2


and the gang...


Velcro fasteners are on my shopping list, so please forgive the paperclips; they're just temporary closures for the photo shoots.

NOTE:  So excited to be selected as the Birthday Winner at TAWS! THANK YOU!!!

My husband is off for his bike ride, so after a whirl wind houseclean/laundry stint, I'm crafting!!

Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments make my day!

  4. These are priceless Carol! Beyond cutie patootie! Another fabulous 'set' of cards complete with a sweet wee envy! The colors of sequins, the patterns and colors of the papers, the image and the curved edges are so totally Baby, Baby, Baby!

    I don't know about you, but for some reason I always prefer baby cards to be smaller than a regular card. Just seems to be more appropriate ... a sweet wee card for a sweet wee baby!

    Can hardly wait for our coffee date! YAY
